Freshmen running backs have factored heavily into Alabama and Georgia's runs to SEC Championship game -- T.J. Yeldon for the Tide, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall for the Dawgs.
Todd Gurley might not win SEC Freshman of the Year because of Johnny Manziel, but what the Georgia running back is doing is rare for a freshman in the SEC.
With more than 700 yards of offense and big plays from all levels of the depth chart, the Georgia Bulldogs won easily to improve to 3-0.
The Georgia Bulldogs aren't worried that they don't have a clear-cut starter at tailback -- instead opting to distribute the ball among the talented trio of Ken Malcome, Todd Gurley, Keith Marshall.
New Georgia Bulldogs center David Andrews figures to anchor the offensive line capably, while newcomers at other positions show varying promising signs.
After having several running backs dismissed for off-the-field issues in recent years, Georgia is hopoing that freshmen Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley are in Athens for the long haul.
The scuttlebutt this spring that UGA freshman RB Todd Gurley was a keep-your-head-down player who could make headlines with his talent was dead on, and the 2011 North Carolina player of the year is ready to do what it takes to make his team great.
